New Choir Members Welcome
This is the website of Motherwell Diocesan Choir. We sing at many of the major services held in Motherwell Cathedral and across the Diocese. You will also find some of the choir singing at the 5.30pm Vigil Mass on Saturdays.
The Motherwell Diocesan Choir is directed by John Pitcathley, and conducted by Des McLean.
Special event for everyone connected over the years to the Diocesan Choir:
On Thursday December 14 at 7pm there will be a Mass in Motherwell Cathedral to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the diocese. During this Mass the bishop will honour the contribution of the Diocesan Choir for 42 years to the liturgy of the Cathedral and to the diocese as a whole. All are welcome to come and share in this happy occasion.

Video clip above is best heard through ear or headphones. A few short soundbites from the concert. Apologies for shaky video. It was recorded on a mobile phone from the rear of the church, unfortunately quite a distance from the choir. Thank you for taking the time to watch. If this inspires you, please feel free to contact us as we are especially seeking Tenor, Bass and Alto singers. The clip was taken on the 16th May, 2018 at our Choral Classics for a Spring Evening concert.
If you were inspired to consider joining us after our carol services, see below
